    Alright gang,I've made this which I believe should easily cover all of us Midlanders. Could everyone put a red dot on it as to where you're living right now and reupload it (if you can't, just send it to me via email and I'll upload it for you) so we can get an idea of where abouts we all are in the Midlands? No need to say who's who really but just so we know where appropriate meet areas will be so we can attempt to get everyone there reasonably easily

    Hey Hunky, I think we need to find a better map than that, cos it doesn't go far enough North and much too far south.

    Is there any kind of online map system that lets you put markers on it? I know there used to be, but I'm not sure if there still is. Something like that might work much better.

    Hmm, I know what you mean Jairen. I've never had much luck with those but I'll look as it's a much easier way than uploading the pic each time

    Yeah, there was a link from the main FF-UK website, however the webpage that it links to is no longer valid.

    EDIT: Best I've been able to come up with is MSN Live Local, where one user can update the map, but they can publish it for everyone to see.

    [link=http://local.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&cp=52.648942~-1.050208&style=r&lvl=19&rtp=null~null&cid=CFE3557E10C930B2!108]Map[/link]

    Good find Phill. Best I got was http://www.frappr.com which I think we could all add to, but it doesn't look as good as the MSN one

    Is it me or what?
    But when i zoom in to street level on lord and lady wizz they appear to be living in a lake?

    Or does the blue patch indicate something else?

    Or, do they live in some kind of futuristic sci-fi underwater world building as all true SCI FI fans do?

    I've tried not to be too accurate on anyone so that you can't work out exactly where people live :D

    Some are a little closer than others, but that was more due to luck than exact placing.
